Excerpt: The hardware in Dell's two Axim X5 models (Basic and Advanced; we tested the latter) is identical to the hardware used on the original Pocket PC 2002 versions. The Dell Axim X5 is still a bit bigger than we'd like, but it remains a great buy because of its dual expansion slots (CompactFlash Type II and Secure Digital) and Dell's standard one-year replacement policy. The Axim X5 has an attractively tapered design, but it is still a handful for small hands.
Excerpt: The Dell Axim X5 is available in two versions. The value configuration ($249 direct, before a $50 rebate) is built around a 300-MHz Intel XScale processor and 32MB of SDRAM, while the performance configuration ($349 direct, before $50 rebate) uses a 400-MHz Intel XScale processor and 64MB of SDRAM. We tested the value configuration. Weighing 6.8 ounces, the X5 is the heaviest of the three tested devices.
